Obesity and Psychological Distress

Bix observed that certain parts of the country experience more Severe Psychological Distress than others. A commenter wondered if there was any correlation to obesity in those same states. I plotted Obesity vs Severe Psychological Stress, and it doesn't look to me like a strong correlation. So I would have to assume that other factors besides Obesity are related to Psychological Distress in the US.

If obese people are more likely to be withdrawn and embarassed about themselves. Isn't it likely that being "treated for mental" stuff is pretty much off the table for them. So the cases from obese people are unreported.
